Linger Awhile, Paperback


When eighty-three-year-old Irving Goodman falls in love with actress, Justine Trimble, she's been dead for forty-seven years.

Irving may not know how he's going to attain his heart's desire but he knows a man who does.

Istvan Fallok, a wizard of high technology, sees her on Irving's TV screen and hi-techs Justine out of the video tape and into present-day Soho - in black-and-white.

As any reader of Bram Stoker will know, blood is the (full-colour) life and in order for Justine to retain her colour, she has to be topped up now and then - by Irving and his friends and the odd passer-by.

Things become a little complicated when Grace Kowalski brings a Justine Two into the picture and not surprisingly the curiosity of the police is soon aroused.
